My name is Lwazi Kolanisi and I'm from SST section in Khayelitsha. SST is predominantly made of shacks.
I am a motivated and well-trained activist that is committed to issues of justice, community organizing and youth development. I have just finished a 4 month fellowship programme at the Social Justice Coalition (SJC).
SJC is a NGO that is working in informal settlements to advance social justice through campaigns for safety, healthy and dignified communities where the constitution rights to life, dignity, equality, freedom and safety are made tangible in the lives of all people, but especially those living in informal settlements.
Now that I am finished with my fellowship I wish to enroll at False Bay College in Khayelitsha to study Public Management. This is a part-time course and not supported by NSFAS. To register for the two modules I want to enroll in I need two payments of R826.
I am using this campaign to raise money for these studies and the necessary stationary and transport costs. I have never had the opportunity to study past Matric, please assist to make my dream a reality.
UPDATE: Thanks to the amazing generosity of mostly anonymous people we reached the initial target for paying the registration fees. I (Peter) have added in estimated costs for 3 months of studying: that is Internet and stationary (R 250) and transport (R 500) for these 3 months. This moves the total to (rounding up) R 4300. Please support towards this total if you can! Thank you!!
While right now Lwazi's goal is to start at college I know he has much greater plans. As explained above, he is an activist with years of experience (and also has a background in drama, having previously won an award in the field) and I expect his studies to go from strength to strength, starting at college and hopefully graduating to university study in the future. Please note that you can choose to make a result donation. If you are inclined, select that option. I will be updating on Lwazi's progress in the coming months.
